Art Business Inspiration and Cats

While having my morning cup of coffee, I found some links and articles that are good resources and inspiring stories for the Artist.


It started off with my visit to BlogHer's article on "10 Blogs to help you become and thrive as a Freelancer."  Have you heard of "The Boss of You" book by Lauren Bacon and Emira Mears?   Well, the article has a link to their blog.   Their blog led me to an interview with Lauren Bacon at Womanzworld.

I also checked my Facebook page and discovered this powerful and moving article about Tim Lowly's drawings.

While trying to enjoy my morning routine, my kitty was fussing the entire time.  She refused to sit on my lap as she usually does, and everything I tried to console her didn't work:  clean litter box, clean water, fresh dry food, fresh canned food, playing every 20 minutes, opening the curtain in the bedroom for her favorite sunning spot and on and on.

So what could it be?  It's been hot, so I have had the electric fan going on in my studio.  Well, that was the problem.  She didn't like it!  Turned off the fan and removed it and she's happy now sitting here with me at my desk.

Hi, Juana! Not good until the cat is happy, right?! ;o) I know the feeling... same with our Charlie, and as he grows older he gets more demanding--but he's still the sweetest fur-baby. So happy to see lovely Sputnik... Off to see about these links. Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

Beautiful cat, great photo. Our pets are sometimes worse than having small children, kind of like every time you got on the phone the kids were yelling, "MOM".

I am really enjoying everyone's comments about their cats:)

Reading and Poetic, cat's have a thing with computers and laptops, don't they!

Tracy, my Sputnik maybe getting more demanding for the same reason that your Charlie is. And yes, they are our sweetest furbabies!
